Tommy: I’ve envisioned this outfit to be a fitting everyday look for an evil queen. From the acid-washed denim, moto style jacket to the snakeskin boots, there is a sleekness and edginess to this aesthetic that I love. I felt so powerful and confident in this get-up. The H&M graphic tee served as the perfect accent to break through some of the darker textures and corrosive textures.

Ernie: Dapper casual was the main inspiration behind my look, which is appropriate for a modern day prince to wear while out and about. Plaid + suede oxfords are quintessentially preppy, dapper and timeless.

This past week has been incredibly sunny in Los Angeles. The occasional, windy breezes, however, prompted us to sport our latest finds from Chicago, which includes an asymmetrical shirt from Opening Ceremony found at Nordstrom Rack (Ernie) and a Topshop angora sweater paired with ombre pant from Zara (Tommy).
Ernie: I’ve always been more of a resourceful shopper. Nordstrom Rack fits the bill when it comes to finding high-end designer garb on the dime. I really lucked out with my OC asymmetrical shirt!

Tommy: Most of what I am wearing are from the women’s section at Topshop and Zara. I often encourage petite guys, like myself, to peruse the women’s section, especially the sales racks (!), to see what they can find. Nowadays, the bulk of womenswear is borderline androgynous and unisexual. I literally gasped when I spotted this angora sweater by its lonesome on the sales floor of Topshop!

As some of you may know, OSOG went on a brief business trip in the Windy City (Chicago) this past week. We loved it! Staying at The Drake, in the midst of the Magnificent Mile, was certainly a welcome change to the urban sprawl of Los Angeles.
Tommy: Finally breaking into the Yohji Yamamoto hybrid high-tops I’ve been obsessing over since their debut on the runway back in FW 2010. Unfortunately, you don’t see much of them in the pictures taken above. (No worries though - the shoes definitely deserve a standalone blog post in the near future!). I love the contrast between the shoes and formal wear I had on. It is very Kanye-esque.

Ernie: Going all formal in an Armani blazer with a casual touch! A dinner meeting, especially with a client, calls for some sprucing up.
